Steelers’ Chase Claypool doesn’t think his celebration cost team the game

John Breech wrote: The Claypool drama started on a fourth-and-1 play with just 42 seconds left. To have any shot of winning, the Steelers needed to convert and they did that when Ben Roethlisberger hit Claypool for a 9-yard gain that took Pittsburgh down to Minnesota's 34-yard line. The Steelers were out of timeouts, so they needed to get to the line as quickly as possible so they could spike the ball to stop the clock. Claypool got criticized because he celebrated the first down and after that celebration, it took 14 seconds from when he got tackled until the Steelers were able to get off their next snap. A tweet calling Claypool "clueless" had more than 6,500 retweets after the game. #InsaneVoice
